I'm in the finals of a big tournament in my area. A lot bigger than the Golden Gloves over here. I've explained it in other threads.

So yesterday when I got out of work me and a friend of mine drove 1.5 hours to go watch these two kids fight in their regional finals. (There are 4 separate tournaments and all the winner fight each other.) The winner of the fight last night, and myself are the last ones standing.

The kid won by 2nd round KO. He looked like a good boxer, but he didn't seem really fast or really strong. Nothing really impressed me. His opponent kinda sucked, he was slow and was a lot shorter than him. I'm taller than him, and I consider myself fast. The kid he was fighting also clearly had *****ty stamina and no heart. This kid is in with a whole different animal when he steps in there with me.

I'm so glad I went to watch this kid fight. I feel like I got a very good advantage. I noticed some things about him like when you throw lots of punches at him he just covers up. He likes to counter, make you throw, take half a step back and throw his right hand.

This kid is the only thing standing between me and a championship belt....I WANT THAT BELT!

Yea it was a long ride but I figured I'd just do it, plus kill time while I was waiting for Mayweather-Marquez to start. I think it was worth it. Now I don't have to sit around wondering...is he southpaw? right handed? tall? short? fast? slow? I know pretty much what he bring to the table.

Thanks man I appreciate it.

Did you trash talk him when you were there and tell him how bad you're gonna whoop dat ass? haha jk.

Good luck in the fight. It always good when you can see your opponent before. Now you have time to train specifcally for him.

It would be hilarious if he sparked you out within 30 second in the first round.

Complacency my friend, complacency.

But I'm sure you will do it.

That would definitely be hilarious lol. I can guarantee that will not happen though. It won't be complacency because I know what this kid brings to the table...somewhat. And Thanks.

I'm not trying to fool anyone. Bro....there are many bigger tournaments than the Golden Gloves. Especialy regional Golden Gloves. The National Golden Gloves are big, but there is still bigger tournaments.

In my area, the Golden Gloves is just two different tournaments, SNE and NNE. The tournament I'm in, the NE Travel Team Championships is much bigger than the Golden Gloves here. There is all kinds of kids who wouldn't be in our regional golden gloves.

4 different touraments in 4 different areas. Winners are all matched up until only oe is left standing. It's a very big tournament. Over a month long. Winners are awarded championship belts and on the traveling team.

This tourament *****s on the Golden Gloves over here.

In my area, it sure is. Your not from my area. This tournament is twice as big as the Golden Gloves over here. Waaaay more fighters from waaaay more areas. When you win the Golden Gloves here, you get a sweatshirt, int eh NE Travel Team Championships you get a championship belt and a spot on the travel team.

As Roger Mayweather would say, "You don't know *****!"

Good luck in your fight, it's always a huge advantage being able to watch your opponent fight before you step in the ring with him. Don't listen to the haterz, they've probably never been near a gym in their lives, never mind a boxing ring. Btw who is that in your display picture?

Thanks man. Yea I dunno whats up with people thinking I'm lying or something. What's the point of making this up? I posted the information for them anyway.

That's Luis Ramos, 12-0 (7 KOs). He's fighting on Versus on Thursday if you wanna check him out. Definitely a future champ in my eyes.

slow and powerfull eh?
I suggest you work on power, footwork, stamina, and speed.
When you fight him keep the jab in his face and counter him all night, maybe get some body shots off the clinch, goodluck :D

Yea that's what I'm working on. Throwing a loooot of jabs. One twos. Straight punches from a distance. I'm sparring some shorter kid tomorrow kinda the same build as my opponent but he fights at 141 not 125.

If he likes to step back and counter, and he's shorter, just dont stay in his range. I fight like that a lot, and it's most effective when the other guy keeps coming at you and getting caught at mid to short range. Just hang back, lotas of snappy forehand stuff, fake heaps, move around him at your distance, look to set up the right hand scoring shot. Keep him defensive with lots of forehand and faking, then open up with the right and quickly move out.
